A wave of climate litigation is sweeping the world as ordinary people and local authorities take their national governments and multinational corporations to court for damaging the planet and human health.
That's the suggestion from Tessa Khan, Co-director of the Climate Litigation Network, who spoke to future Net Zero at the organisation's ‘Countdown to COP’ event in London earlier this month.
Actions against national governments are already happening in India, Columbia, Ireland, Switzerland, Germany, France, the US and Canada - the Netherlands has already been ordered to reduce emissions by an absolute amount in a case last December.
